I haven’t been aware of fashion designer Isabel Marant for quite a long time, but ever since I saw Sienna Miller donning an awesome pair of killer stud booties by the French designer, I knew this had to change. The clothes she designs are really great, but her shoes are where it’s really at for me. Case in point: the chain-wrapped slouchy suede boots from her Spring 2009 collection which have been lusted after by fashion connoisseurs around the world.

Miley Cyrus Loves Isabel Marant

For some reason celebrities haven’t picked up on these kickass boots yet. Miley Cyrus, not particularly known for her impeccable style, has been the only who rocked these suede boots on stage.

Jeffrey Campbel “Third” Suede Chain Boots

Jeffrey Campbell might not deserve a creativity award for his work since most of his styles are based on some other designer’s shoes, but I have to give kudos to him for being a great trendspotter. He picks up on trends when most high street retailers still replicate stuff from last season. These chain boots are an almost identical copy of the original Isabel Marant boots. They are not the cheapest at $244.95, but since the originals cost about $1300, they are still a great budget-friendly alternative.
